Nightfall Surrender

Nightfall Surrender

You became a part of me
as I join in and became
a part of you…
   rolling along with the waves
   you complete me
   as I complete you

Soul mates lost
in forgotten time…
the ebb joins the flow
in luxurious tides
finding fulfilling delights

You alone fill 
my empty spaces,
   as the waves of the sea
   fill the voids in the sand,
permeating my being 
with extensiveness
as no other has before
or since

Tick, Tocks
the forgotten clock
lost in the bliss 
of the sensual night…
pulled under 
in wave after crashing wave…
   drowning quite happily
   in your arms…our crescendo!
Then comes the sighs 
of morning’s arrival…
as tears anew stain
your empty pillow…
   still somehow
   your memory
   completes me
   if only at nightfall
   when remembrances
   thrive in dreams pleasure

    the ending is sad, yet the poem is still so sensual. My favorite lines are "in wave after crashing wave… drowning quite happily in your arms…our crescendo!" Congratulations, Debra, on your win in Cyndi's contest. Hugs, Catie :)

    A love filled heart that's so alone. Remembering a love that it'd once known. Requainted souls among the stars. Await return of Venus and Mars.
